After years of begging fans may finally get more of the vampire slayer, Blade!
There’s more, during an interview celebrating Blade‘s 20th anniversary, Wesley Snipes revealed that he’s had conversations about not one but two new Blade projects. There’s a chance we will see the vampire hunter enter the Marvel Cinematic Universe and possibly Blade 4.
There’s a lot of conversations going on right now and we’re very blessed to have the enthusiasm and interest in something coming from that world again. We’ve created two projects that fit perfectly into this world and, when people see them, I think they’re only going to have problems deciding which one they love the most.”
Snipes has promised that what they’re cooking up will put previous films to shame.
All the main execs [at Marvel] and my team, we’ve been discussing for the past two years. Everyone’s enthusiastic about it, everybody gets it. But they got a business to run and they gotta square the things that they gotta figure out before they can get it, I guess. In the meantime, we got a business to run and our own slate of things to do so…But the next time you see something [in the Blade universe], mark my words: what we did before is child’s play compared to what we can do now. “
After Avengers 4, the door is wide open to introduce Blade to the Marvel world. Marvel producer Kevin Feige has even stated that Blade‘s introduction is not a possibility but an eventuality.
It would be weird to have anyone but Snipes play Blade, remember that TV series? It just wasn’t the same. But if they are going to bring Snipes back they need to hurry up, he’s not getting any younger.
We’ll keep you posted. Would you be psyched to see Blade return? Let us know.
